RV goes up in flames beside NE Bend business


A 35-year-old Winnebago RV was destroyed by a fire in northeast Bend Saturday night, but crews kept the blaze from doing more than scorching the exterior of a commercial building it was parked next to, an official said.

Firefighters were dispatched around 8:30 p.m. to a report of black smoke seen near Boyd Acres Road and Brinson Boulevard, Deputy Fire Marshal Cindy Kettering said.

Subsequent callers identified it as a motor home sitting just a few feet from a commercial building, she said, so the incident was upgraded to a full structure fire response, with 16 firefighters and four engines called out.

Arriving crews found the 26-foot 1980 Winnebago Chieftain fully involved, with flames spreading to the metal siding of the business, Superior Automotive, at 62980 Boyd Acres Road, Kettering said.

Firefighters quickly doused the flames and assured the fire did not extend into the interior of the building just four feet away, though the metal siding and adjacent insulation was damaged.

The motor home was a total loss, Kettering said, with losses estimated at $2,000 to the building, $2,500 to the RV and $500 worth of contents.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, Kettering said.
